house official says the obama administration has been briefed on the situation. they continue monitoring local and state response through the federal emergency management agency. in addition to tending to those who have been injured, officials are concerned about the possibility of a secondary explosion. a texas state official gave a briefing early this morning and said that, quote, there are still active ingredient there's. and that the fire continued to burn. with active ingredients, we can only assume he means dangerous chemicals that could lead to a secondary explosion. to the force of that blast. it was felt, reportedly, as far as 70 miles away. our own charles hadlock, was 60 miles away at the time. and he felt that explosion. and one official who got an opportunity to survey some of the damage said it was massive. the damage was massive. it looked just like iraq. and looked just like the oklahoma city bombing. that's how severe that damage was. again, residents have been told to evacuate from nearby areas. and those who are in the area who have not evacuated are being told to stay

they probably -- something sliped through the cracks for them. it wasn't their most shining moment. however, think about bush-cheney and think about obama administration. fbi under bush-cheney, would they have been -- would they have interrogated him? would they have brought him in and spent more time with tamerlan years ago in 2009 when they had his name on the list? when his name popped up on the list would they have gone after them, or was there pc stuff at work where the obama administration says, look, we are not going to go after him right now. he has been cleared. let's not take a look now and let's not follow him. my concern is the treatment of terror under obama is different than the treatment of terror under bush-cheney. obama doesn't want to call it terror. he wants to call it -- i don't know. >> the fort hood one was classified as workplace violence. i don't know if they would claim a do over on that one. greg, you talked about the fbi on saturday when we had our special show. as we have gone over the past two days, even this morning there was something that said that perhaps on
. the easiest way to tell the story is through the loss of the olympics for 2016. if you remember, chicago was one of the four finalists, and president obama and his wife michelle went to copenhagen to argue the case and that's when the president discovered what the effect had been. the olympic committee said i'm sorry, but we can't risk the games, your border system which we believe will harass and reject a lot of athletes. >> michael: that's just amazing. this is the country of give us your tired, give us your poor, but once you get to the border we're going to send you home. but prior to 9/11 there was controversy about whether the federal government should promote tourism to the united states. >> when the republicans gained control of the house in 1994 and as you remember newt gingrich became the speaker there was a clash immediately with his vision of small government versus the clinton white house vision of smart government. and tourism was the completely surprising battleground. president clinton and vice president gore thought the opening of the world wit

is a tip skeeter, while you're able to arm yourself while calling obama a gun-grabbing tyrant is proof that he is not. by opposing background checks at gun shows, the nra guarantees that guns can be legally bought through the gun show loophole by felons or third parties who sell to felons. then those legal guns disappear, get sold a few more times. when the cops recover those weapons years later after a killing that wiped out a playground full of kids, police can say illegal guns. background checks would not have stopped anything. background checks only infringe on your second amendment rights if you're a felon, a terrorist or criminally insane. if you're all three you probably already work as an nra lobbyist. it's all about the money. west borough ignores the teachings of jesus and takes one line out of context to justified their evil. the nra ignores the second amendment well-regulated militia part to fulfill their greed. opposing gun safety is an insult to people. wayne lapierre is indifferent and makes more nra members think, maybe i'm okay. i would like to thank amy goodman, kara

comply with the laws of war. president obama has committed to observe the geneva conventions through an executive order, about the a future president could change it by the stroke of a pen. congress, one of our recommendations, needs to work with the administration to strengthen torture statutes, the war crimes act, and the uniform code of military justice to remove the loopholes that allow torture to occur. in terms of the c.i.a., we did not have access to classified information. this is a reason we asked the administration to review much the classified information to see what can be released without compromising national and to provide more trance parns a and life on how the policy decisions were made. dr. david would be happy to answer questions when we conclude about the responsibility and how the absence of clear standards left troops on the front line in an untenable position. on the question of effectiveness of torture, there is no persuasive evidence in the public record that the wide spread use of torture against suspected terrorists was necessary. that is that it produced s
question. this is an unusually complex long-range crime. so in my article in reuters today, walking through the analysis of the law here, one of the arguments that the obama justice department seems on the verge of making is we have crimes that went over several days. we have a suspect that as of this point, nbc news hasn't confirmed the medical condition and there may have been a long lag before he was interrogated. as long as the investigators and the justice department are meaningfully applying that exception and saying we really are trying to get that actionable information and it may have been delayed bied medical conditions. they will be on strong legal ground even if they go past 350 minutes and breaks precedent. this goes to what we were discussing previously. if that makes an excuse of making a mockery of it, we don't know yet. if it does, it's our job as citizens and the press to keep a close eye on that. a lot of what we saw under the prior administration, under george w. bush, was the argument that terror makes everything different, i.e., you have less rights. in rah suel and ha
